At this time, the compiler cannot supporting systems which lack  
certain architectural features (e.g., several internal  
transformations introduce address/pointer expressions in code which  
does not contain any pointers whatsoever at the Pascal level). While  
it is possible to override these, it would be much more difficult  
then just disabling a couple of things in the parser for certain
